Sink broken away from granite work top

Postby Richard W » Sun Apr 29, 2007 5:38 pm

My stainless steel sink has just broken away from the kitchen granite work top.

On investigation, the sink was held by metal clips screwed into the underside of the granite. This was achieved by a threaded insert being epoxy's (I assume) into the granite, to take the clip crew.

The sink was installed about 10 years ago.

I have seen that this is a common technique - although installing in MDF under the granite is a preferred solution.

Are the threaded inserts and epoxy standard items - and who might stock them? Any problems in re-fixing the same way?

See the project on granite worktops and contact the company (Shaw stone) through their link in there Richard. They should be able to source them for you.
